Good car, but does have issues.

2001 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


A nice car, nothing outstanding, but
still a very worthy buy. As the
reviewers mentioned, the Corolla is
very reliable car - though I have only
owned it for 3 years / 36,000 miles.
The car does seem to be put together
well; no loose parts or rattling.
Some problems: back seat way too
small (no leg room), the engine
performance isn't great (particularly
with the a/c on), and for some reason
my car has always had a problem with
shifting into reverse. That being
said, overall, this is a good car.

Best Features

Automatic lights, temperature gauge, and the fact that there are no loose parts or rattling.

Worst Features

Increase the size of the back seat...drastically, brakes need to be more responsive, and give the engine some more power.

I have drove standards all my life and this one I am so upset about it .. I won't drive it as I am afraid to drive it incase I get on the streets and can't shift it ... yes I am a female .. did I buy a lemon ???/
